Oh my goodness....
Mr B will vouch for this! I am addicted to....Asparagus!Last year, it was almost a daily treat, like a pregnancy craving for a whole month! I was known to send Mr B out on special spears expeditions! Go, Man, hunt/gather the pointy green stuff!
Asparagus, Asparagus, Asparagus!
It seems a bit early but there is British, seasonal Asparagus in the shops now! In this case the lovely M&S again! 2 packets of the lovely stuff for £3!
I say once more, it is not that I have squillions of pounds....like most homes with small children we live on one salary....but I reason in my head:
Asparagus OR Marie Claire?
Hmmmmmmmmmm.....well I don't if this is a sad admission, but asparagus wins every time!
This was my lunch time bliss today!Grab a steamer or a pan of water (you can boil them together), get water boiling.Note time.Place room temperature egg in water, pop on steamer, chuck in your asparagus (fibrous ends snapped off....if you are a glutton like me, you eat those too, raw!).Time it! 4minutes!Egg soft boiled to perfection, al dente asparagus (drop in a knob of butter and shake about in the steamer top)Kitchen surface to your tummy in under five minutes!Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
